My girls absolutely loved Halloween as they were growing up, so we went all out every year with costumes, and decorations. We live in a great neighborhood to trick-or-treat in, so we always invited their classmates to come trick-or-treating with us. I’d make lots of food, the kids would get tons of candy and the best part was counting all the goodies when they got home. Really fond memories!
I’m always on the look out for new, fun ideas to make the holiday special.
Here’s some I really liked….
I found these Halloween decorating tips by Dylan Lauren, owner of Dylan’s Candy Bar, on One Kings Lane. They’re super easy but really chic, which I love. You can find all supplies at One Kings Lane.
How easy would this be to make! You just need a cake stand, lots of Oreo cookies with the green filling and black gummy snakes.
For a fun candy station use glass and apothecary jars and fill with orange, yellow and black candy. Label each jar with a black stickers and write: cat eyes, worms or beetle eggs. Also make sure and put out scoops and cute Halloween bags, so your guests can help themselves.
You can also find similar items at Walmart, Target or Michaels. I’ve bought all of my glass and apothecary jars at those stores and Target sells the black stickers for the jars. For the bags you can also use these from Target, much more cost effective and you can tie them with orange ribbon. I’ve done candy bars before but I really think the black labels add a nice touch.
Cheesecloth-wrapped mason-jar candles make for dim mood lighting while serving double-duty as adorable mummies. They’re also cute to hold lollypops or plastic utensils for a party.
You can find cheesecloth at many grocery, gourmet, hardware, fabric or hobby stores. The mason jars can be found almost anywhere but Target and Walmart always have them. Plastic eyes can be found at craft stores.
Here are some creative ideas I found on Pinterest look under my BOO board.
These pumpkins are cute as centerpieces or just around the house. I like that there not scary.
White pumpkins encircled by bittersweet vines make for a festive centerpiece.
If you’re new to my blog then you probably don’t know how much I love PINK. When I saw this table I just had to post it. The original source is no longer available so I don’t have details but it was too pretty not to post. I don’t think it would be too hard to do, just a little paint and for the flowers: you just carve out a hole in the pumpkin and stick a container in it to hold the water and flowers. I think this is a really fun way to do something different for Halloween. You could, of course, always do this with traditional Fall colors.
All the best,
